Late to the party!

My friends will tell you that I'm almost always late to every party, so why should my blog be an exception? I am HORRIBLY late in wishing congrats to the two newest members of the HannaStamps design team, Sherry Cheever & Jeanne Streiff! Both of these talented stampers need no introduction, as everyone is VERY familiar with their unbelievable work! A late congrats to you both, we anxiously await your Hanna eye candy! And congrats to Kristy from Hanna stamps also! She is rocking our worlds with a new release stamp set! AIR FIVES!

The newest Hanna set will be released on Friday, and is called "The Perfect Package"! It is the GIFTIEST Hanna set yet! And Hanna is already a very GIFTY girl! You will start seeing lots of sneak peeks on the Hanna design team blogs on the links to the right...we all just received the sets this week & are as busy as Santa's elves, trying to HANNIFY our cards!
This is my first attempt with the newest Hanna set...I bought this little wooden "gift bag" box at Michaels in the alterable wood section a while ago. I had it in my head that I would make a box for my Christmas receipts to go in. I'm not very organized, and every year, I end up with receipts everywhere in my house. Makes it sort of hard if I need to return gift items I've bought for people! So this year, I am ORGANIZED! I am promising myself that I will PUT THE RECEIPTS IN THE HANNA BOX! DOH!
I used polka dot paper from My Mind's Eye (Tres Jolie Ooh La La "Sunshine Polka Dot" and "Just Perfect") & then colored Hanna in with copic markers. The ribbon has been glitterfied with a sparkly light blue glitter. I have determined after scrapping about 5 Hanna images, that I just cannot use Stampin Up paper with my Copic markers. They just show up so much better on the cheapie Wal-Mart brand paper. Live and learn!

So I feel like being GIFTY this week in honor of the new Hanna release & Christmas! So check back here on Thursday, when I will have a Hanna "Tis the season" set to give away! TIS THE SEASON TO BE GIFTY! :)
